Little beats a week-end in the bush. Spent 4 nights in the Kruger National Park in early August at a bush camp called Talamati in the central area of the Park, west of the big main camp Satara. August is the best time for the Kruger Park as it is dry and game congregates around the water holes, plus the grass tends to be lower and the bush not as dense. And lots of general game there was. Kruger does not offer the massive herds that Game Parks further north in Africa do, but the variety and biodiversity is one of the best in the world. And Kruger is not just about the game, the bird watching and the flora but also about that peace and quiet in the camps or even simply sitting at a water hole and waiting to see what will transpire. Time takes on a different dimension and it was a big shock coming back to the ‘big smoke’ of Jozi. And yes I did some stargazing – beautiful clear nights and saw Saggitarius clearly above us.
